  • We visited this after Castel Sant'elmo and thought it was wonderful. You don't have to be religious to appreciate the beauty of the church and contents.

  • This museum has one of the most beautiful church interiors I've seen during my visit in Naples. It's a must see, the pictures don't make it justice trust me. I recommend getting the audio guide and visiting in the morning as more floors are open then. Still it's worth visiting even just for the church itself.
  • Beautiful views, beautiful frescoes inside. I'm not sure if there's anything worth seeing in the first floor (the upper floor), as it was closed. The rooms around the cloister were barely visible, as you could only see the rooms through a glass ceiling.
